ABOUT US

We are Alastair & Maggi, both exiled Scots in the south of England where we lived and worked for many decades.

Maggi mostly in training and education and Ally, after a successful army career, as a prison officer.


We have always wished to return to the home of our birth and our hearts. Once our large family became adults and able to do their own lives the time had come. In 2015 we bought a little piece of paradise on the stunning Isle of Skye, the Misty Isle.  Finally, early 2021 in the middle of the pandemic, we were able to relocate here permanently. It has always been our intention, along with crofting, to offer top class holiday accommodation, for visitors to the island. Our crofts are inhabited currently by cats, dogs, chickens and horses. Eventually we hope to have bee hives and a few sheep….. watch this space, it’s a project in development.

We don’t call it a dream, we call it a plan.
